Actual Play: Courage – Prologue

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you: Courage – a Lunar solo chronicle! Before you scroll all the way down to fetch the PDF of the prologue, let me get a bit deeper into the background of this campaign.

It all happened in the fall of 2011. I had left my hometown behind to live a bit closer to my university, and that was really cool and all. The drawback was that I was away from my role-playing troupe now, which caused me to play about zero hours a week. This started to annoy me, but my friend (who I will call Dee for the sake of privacy) proposed that we might play something online. He had this cool concept of a shield-using Lunar, defending a city he loves, and I had an urge to see how Google Wave fared when used as a RPG tool, and so we had ourselves a little solo chronicle. That night, Courage was born.

But what is Courage? Well, you should rather ask who Courage is. Shield of Feline Courage is a young Lunar, who works as a male escort and dancer during the day, and slaughters the corrupt and frees the weak at night. His adventures take place in the city of Whitewall, and together with a whole team of colourful individuals, he will witness some great changes in one of the largest cities of Creation.

The chronicle never really ended, so I will only post AP’s up to one of the dramatic peaks of the story. Even though we never wrapped it up, I have to admit that running a solo chronicle is a lot of fun. Doing it online on Wave also felt like an exercise in cooperative writing, which is something both Dee and I really enjoyed.

The transcripts you will find here are mostly unedited. The only things I removed were the most obvious / obnoxious spelling errors and the dice rolls. I hope that you will have fun reading these, and if you have any thing to say about them, feel free to drop me a line.

With that said… click below to see the seven-page long prologue!
